Also, I don't think anybody "wanted" Oduya out. Most just realized that with his contract expiring, Jets not making playoffs, and the cost to re-sign versus role he would play (#6 versus 2-2.5million to re-up) that the best move was to trade him. Not a fit going forward. Not that we couldn't use him right now but it just wasn't going to work.
I'm still of the opinion that a Hainsey-Postma second pairing, Stuart-Redmond 3rd pairing is what we should go with, to help spread to minutes out...
I'd like that too, I just don't think Noel ever goes for it. He seems to like giving certain guys "roles" like how our second pairing is used mainly for shutting down the opposition.
This lineup would probably have him spread the offensive zone starts a bit more and I'm not sure he'd ever go for it. I would love to see him try, it would be hard for Redmond to be worse than Clitsome.
